Mesothelioma Attorney in Savannah
Georgia isn't new to asbestos exposure cases. This was the first US State to commercially mine asbestos. The mining started in 1894 and was banned in 2002. Even after the nationwide ban on asbestos mining, many products still contain this known carcinogen.
Closer home in Georgia, about 361 people died due to mesothelioma between 2001 and 2010, and many more were confirmed to have developed mesothelioma due to years of asbestos exposure, per a CDC report on malignant mesothelioma. If you've been diagnosed with mesothelioma or lost a loved one due to this cancer, a Savannah Mesothelioma lawyer from Morgan and Morgan might be able to help you obtain some monetary compensation. To find out whether you are eligible for compensation, please fill out our free case evaluation form.

What Will the Compensation Cover?
Compensation in a mesothelioma case typically covers the following:
- medical bills for current and future treatments
- any current and future lost wages if you're unable to work;
- compensation for pain and suffering;
- the costs of ongoing care;
- any modifications needed for your home due to your illness; and
- funeral and burial expenses and the loss of companionship in the case of the wrongful death of a loved one.
The exact damages you may be entitled to will depend on the uniqueness of your case. That's why we recommend contacting us for a free case review by a mesothelioma expert in Savannah.
Who Receives Compensation for Mesothelioma?
Compensation for mesothelioma usually goes to the individual diagnosed with the disease. However, in the unfortunate event that the individual has passed away, their family members or the estate may receive compensation through a wrongful death lawsuit.
Can I File a Claim if I'm Unemployed?
Yes, you can file a mesothelioma claim, usually against a previous employer, even if you're unemployed at the moment. Your employment status at the time of diagnosis does not affect your right to seek compensation.
Is Workers' Compensation Insurance Enough to Cover My Medical Bills?
Filing a workers' compensation claim is a great place to start since it can help cover medical bills and a portion of your lost wages if you were exposed to asbestos at work. But you shouldn't count on it to fully cover all costs and impacts of mesothelioma, such as pain and suffering or the full extent of lost future earnings. This is why you should consider exploring additional legal avenues to maximize your claim with the help of an experienced Savannah mesothelioma lawyer.
What if the Company That Exposed Me to Asbestos Closed Down?
You might still have options for compensation. Many companies have established asbestos trust funds specifically for compensating victims. These funds are created as part of bankruptcy proceedings and are intended to provide compensation for those who were exposed to asbestos and diagnosed with mesothelioma while working at these companies, even after they cease operations.
